We will knit the Ninilchik Swoncho by Caitlin Hunter - Pattern required through Ravelry for this Knit-Along style class. Inspired by a desire to design a modern, unexpected take on a classic Lopapeysa, the Ninilchik Swoncho is Caitlin's personal dream come true of style meets cozy comfort…This swoncho is as comfy as being wrapped in a blanket, but is more functional thanks to its clever construction and sleeves. This cozy piece will surely be a go-to knit in your closet - you may find yourself reaching for it year-round! Coming in just 2 sizes that fit a wide range of bodies, you may even have to make a few to compensate for the family members who swipe one from under your nose! We will be knitting in the round, short rows, stranded colorwork (note that while most rounds use only 2 colors, there are 2 rounds which require carrying 3 colors).
NOTE - Homework before the first class - Knit the ribbing (and if you are making it a turtleneck, knit it) so that we can jump in with Chart 1. That way, if you need help or need to learn how to do the short rows, we can cover that during the first class!
Advanced beginner - You will need to know how to knit, purl, decrease, and increase.
Size 1 will fit XS-M, size 2 will fit L-3X
